My love for random stuff and my love for doing fun things with Camila has spurred yet another amazing experiment that we would like to share with you all!
Since Easter had just recently passed we bought some Easter egg looking things at Wal-Mart. (They always have the fun stuff) You put the Easter eggs into water much like our first experiment and something grows out of them. This time we had not the slightest of clue what would come out.
So Camila is going to show you how to properly hatch Experimental Easter Eggs.
- Mason jar (Lids preferred if you don’t want a mess)
- Dissolving mystery eggs
- Water (It’s not in the picture but just use your imagination)
- Baby Scientist (Also not in the picture at the moment)
STEP 1: GRAB YOUR EGGS
Gently grab the eggs and prepare to put them in the jars. We have no idea what the eggs are made out of but Camila was smacking them in the sand prior to us starting and one cracked a little, so treat them nicely.
STEP 2: PLACE EGGS IN MASON JARS
Go ahead and put the eggs into the mason jars. Again be careful because they will break if you try to man handle the huevos. As you can see Camila is extremely concentrated here making sure the transition from hand to jar goes smoothly.
STEP 3: ADD WATER AND SEAL THE JARS
At this point just go ahead and fill up the jar as much as you can with water and then put the lid on and tighten it up. She was a little wild with the water so I had to pour it in for her, and she doesn’t quite know how to close the jar so I had to do that as well. She is learning though. Maybe next time she can close her own jar and pour her own water.
Camila isn’t so excited to wait. She wants results and she wants them now. Her hot little cup of coffe was getting cold. Unfortunately my little scientist had to wait it out in order to see what they grow into. I was almost as impatient as she was.
So believe it or not these bad boys came outside of the eggs. There were 2 holes on the bottom of the eggs which let the water in. So after a few hours they actually hatch underwater with some blobby yellow figures peeking out. A couple more hours passed and then I decided to remove these plastic extinct specimens from the jar of H2O they were sitting in.
Definitely not a bad way to kill time, have fun, and leave yourself in a bit of suspense for a whopping $0.98!
